Track description and topics of interest

The teaching and learning process is no longer limited to classrooms and could be in remote environments like homes, museums, and parks. Thus, disruptive changes in learning and instruction through emerging technologies require new perspectives for the design and development of learning environments. Closely linked to the demand of new approaches for designing and developing learning environments is the necessity for enhancing the design and delivery of assessment systems and automated computer-based diagnostics. These systems need to accomplish specific requirements, such as adaptivity to different subject domains, flexibility for experimental and instructional settings, managing huge amounts of data, rapid and near real-time analysis of specific data, immediate feedback for learners, educators and learning designers, as well as generating automated reports of the diagnostics’ results that may be useful for educators to provide help for at-risk learners and reduce the dropping-out rate. Furthermore, sophisticated databases and network technologies hold potential for an especially wide variety of applications for technology-enhanced assessment. Hence, given the recent developments in educational data mining and learning analytics, technology-enhanced assessment may improve on-going learning by providing instant and rich feedback on the current stage of the learning process.

This track aims to provide insights into the latest developments of research focusing on technology-enhanced assessment in formal and informal education (either formal or informal education, and the combination of them) by addressing some questions including: “How can we enhance the assessment process using new technologies?”,  “Can learners’ traces be useful in the assessment process?”, “Can emerging technologies in education, such as games and gamification, be used as assessment tools?”, “How can teachers use the real-time analyses to help at-risk learners?”,”How can teachers create an adaptive assessment tool based on the teaching domain?”, “How can the teacher manage the huge amount of data in online learning systems?”, “How can we ensure learners’ privacy protection in e-assessment?”

The scope of the track 14 includes but is not limited to the followings:


  • Automated Feedback to Improve Student Writing
